Ring has become one of the most recognizable and trusted names in the home security and surveillance industry. Their reputation is taking a major hit as of late with the recall of 350,000 household devices in the United States.

The Amazon subsidiary announced on November 10 that there is an issue exclusive to the second-generation Ring device. Numerous incidents have been reported that ultimately lead to the company revising their installation instructions and warnings. 85 incident reports detail that the incorrect screws were installed with the Ring doorbell, and 23 of these products ignited as a result of the battery overheating. The United States Consumer Product Safety Commision reported minor property damage and burns, but no major fires or injuries from these incidents.

Ring is working closely with the CPSC to get the situation under control by promptly removing the faulty devices that have been installed. Customers that purchased the 2nd generation Ring Video Doobell have been contacted, but were informed that returns are not necessary in this recall. The updated user manual with device installation instructions explicitly states that the doorbell can overheat if damaged. There is a clear diagram that shows screws must be a specific length to avoid puncturing the battery when mounting on the home exterior. Customers in the United States and Canada are urged to visit the company website to see if their device is a part of the recall (model number 5UM5E5).

The company claims that customer safety is their top priority, doubling down on their partnerships with hundreds of police departments in the last year. Police would be able to request video recordings if they believed it could help with active investigations in certain areas. Privacy advocates were strongly against the idea of a potentially creating an intrusive surveillance program from the home security devices.
